in new york. leading off tonight, war news. president obama will announce his decision on afghanistan in a prime-time speech next week. and he's expected to give general mcchrystal 35,000 more troops, slightly less than the 40,000 the general asked for. the decision will perhaps quiet charges from dick cheney and those on his side that he's dithering on afghanistan. but now the president will have to confront the liberal wing of his own party, who see this as nothing short of an escalation of war, even a new war. so can president obama sell his troop commitment to leading democrats? can he fight a war mainly dependent on republican voters? and how to sell it to an increasingly skeptic american public? >>> plus, you're not going to like this picture. president obama may have republicans on his side when it comes to afghanistan, but his decision to try 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed up in new york federal court has given them another reason for attack. and now an attorney for one of ksm's co-defendants says all five detainees plan to plea not guilty and act as their own lawyers
